ARResT/Interrogate: an interactive immunoprofiler for IG/TR NGS data

Bioinformatics. 2017 Feb 1;33(3):435-437. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btw634.


Motivation: The study of immunoglobulins and T cell receptors using next-generation sequencing has finally allowed exploring immune repertoires and responses in their immense variability and complexity. Unsurprisingly, their analysis and interpretation is a highly convoluted task.

Results: We thus implemented ARResT/Interrogate, a web-based, interactive application. It can organize and filter large amounts of immunogenetic data by numerous criteria, calculate several relevant statistics, and present results in the form of multiple interconnected visualizations.

Availability and implementation: ARResT/Interrogate is implemented primarily in R, and is freely available at


Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
